Mike Walton checked this out with the BSA Drug Abuse Prevention Task Force, and has reported the following
The booklet "Don't Be Tricked by Drugs: A Deadly Game!" has been replaced by a newer booklet, entitled "Take A Stand Against Drugs!". The booklet, pictured below, should be available from your local Boy Scout Council Office (NOT the Scout Shop™). If your Council Office does not have copies of this publication, they should call the National BSA Drug Prevention Task Force for additional copies. Bulk orders by Scouters or other groups are also accepted, and may be made by sending a check for $20.00 for 100 copies, to:
DRUG ABUSE PREVENTION TASK FORCE, SUM 118
NATIONAL OFFICE, BSA
1325 WEST WALNUT HILL LANE
IRVING, TEXAS, USA 75061-2049
Remember, the first place to go is not to the SCOUT SHOP™, but to your COUNCIL OFFICE. Ask for copies of the new publication; if they do not have a copy, the Council office should call The DRUG ABUSE PREVENTION TASK FORCE at National and they will drop-ship them additional copies. This pamphlet should be used to fulfill requirement 7 of the Webelos Scout FITNESS Activity Pin, in lieu of the booklet mentioned in the Webelos Scout Book.
BSA has NOT given permission to post a copy of the booklet on the web, but did give us permission to scan in, and post, a copy of the cover of the booklet, which can be seen at:
We've also updated the FITNESS Activity pin requirements, posted on the USSSP web site, to reflect this change.
The scouting graphics for all levels of scouting are available on line at
or you can get it as a CD
Why A CD?:
For years we have been maintaining a free online library of Scouting images. Over the years many Scouters asked about how to go about having their own copy of all the images on the ftp site so that they could take the library with them on Scouting events.
This USSSP CD-ROM contains over 16,000 images (approximately 5,000 unique images in multiple formats) and 1,500 documents from our Clipart & File Library Site.
Purchase Your Copy of the CD: If you would like to purchase a copy of the CD you can use our order form. If you have suggestions for what you would like to see included on the next version of our CD, please drop us a line.
Download the Same Resources for Free: Remember, you don't have to buy a CD to use any of our free resources. Please feel free to browse our Clipart and File Library and download anything that will help you or your Scouting organization. We built the Clipart and File Library for the purpose of making Scouting resources available to Scouts and Scouters to further the aims of Scouting.
Need Something You Can't Find At USSSP: If you can't find what you need, please let the U.S. Scouting Service Project know and we'll see what we can do.
Contributions Welcome: If you have clipart, documents, or other stuff that you'd like to share, please let us know. We are always looking for new material to add to the library.
Versions and Future Plans:
Version 1.1 of the USSSP CD has a new cover to indicate that it was produced by USSSP (Version 1.0 was produced by our fulfillment agent). The contents are the same as Version 1.0.
We are currently considering the production of a Version 2.0 CD with more content and resources.
